Welcome Dr. Goodrich


The Krause Center is excited to welcome its newest team member: Grant Goodrich. Although Dr. Goodrich has just begun as an Adjunct Faculty member at The Krause Center, he is no stranger to the Krause Center. Last year, the Citadel Ethics Bowl Team recruited Dr. Goodrich to drive them to the Southeast Regional Ethics Bowl contest in Florida in November. They placed in the top five out of 20 and consequently received a bid to compete at nationals in Texas. Once they came back to campus, Dr. Goodrich began coaching the Ethics Bowl team.

His commitment to ethics, The Citadel, and leadership, coupled with his Ph.D. and M.A. in History and Philosophy of Science from Indiana University make him a great addition to the Krause Center.

His extended biography can be read here.

Welcome to the Krause Center, Dr. Goodrich! We look forward to your insight and guidance as we develop our leadership programs.
